Skip to comments.I'm Feeling GREAT Over the Primary Election Results!!!
Posted on 01/20/2008 6:03:26 AM PST by PJ-Comix
I'm getting something of a chuckle out of reading all the Chicken Little "WOE IS US" posts over the primary election results from yesterday. Why? Simple. Because the one viable conservative candidate with the best chance of winning in the General Election is in a better position than ever.
In case you haven't noticed, Mitt Romney now has more delegates than all the other candidates put together. McCain's win in South Carolina has hurt Mike Huckabee bigtime. However, McCain will be much easier to defeat in the primaries in the long run than the Huckster which is good news.
And to all you Fred Thompson supporters. Now is the time to face reality and support the remaining viable conservative candidate---Mitt Romney. Romney is now in the best positition to harvest a big delegate count on Super Tuesday because of his superior organization and finances. Ultimately, McCain will lose out to Mitt.
With Hillary as the Democrat nominee running against Mitt in the General Election, Mitt wins. Why? Because I GUARANTEE one or more third party candidates (think Bloomy and Ralph and even Dennis) running because of leftwing disgust with Hillary. And guess who that draws votes from.
But don't take my word for this. I am sure Rush will put things into proper perspective on his show tomorrow.
“Unfortunately even a lot of Freepers are smearing Mitt over the Mormon thing. Hopefully this will soon STOP.”
I would say “a few” not “a lot” and frankly as one who could care less what religion he adheres to I’d just as soon they stopped calling it Christianity. You want to be Mormon, then BE Mormon and call it that, not Christian.
Hey, don’t blame the messenger.
I think it must have SOMETHING to do with Romney himself. Frankly, I think he can’t get elected. I have doubts about the electability of EVERY Republican presently given a chance at the nomination.
Wasn’t that the goal of the MSM all along? To drive out anyone with a real chance of victory in November? Does anyone REALLY think thet these guys are anything more than the propaganda arm of the Democrat Party?
Having the rabid left in charge for even the next 8 years will make this country unrecognizable if we even remain as a soveriegn nation (look closely at Hillary and Obama's mentor Saul Alinsky and you will see their goal is to do away with nations and become one world)and the damage will be irreversable.
If you think no one passes your purity test and staying home so Hillary gets elected will bring about the second coming of Ronald Reagan I've got news for you, it's more likely to bring the second coming of Karl Marx and this time he'll be here to stay!
Bush or Gore
Bush or Kerry
Are you saying our nation or conservatism would be better off with a Democrat administration in office over the CRUCIAL last eight years?
Personally I believe the same thing if Romney wins it....And I think Rush will eventually come to the same conclusion.
You're forgetting, Myth Romney is not a conservative. Fred`s campaign maybe on thin ice, but Romney is not the answer.
Hmm. Just when we thought it could not get worse you have proven that isn’t true.
If Mitt wins it IS worse.
I’m not a Romney supporter. I’m Fred all the way. But I’m always suspicious when the MSM doesn’t like one of our candidates. While they don’t seem to despise Romney the way they do Fred, they still don’t seem to like him. There’s got to be a reason. The fact that they are pushing McCain & Huckabee tells me all I need to know about those 2.
Even if I didn’t like Fred, I would vote for him out of spite. I refuse to let the liberal media pick my candidate.
That ticks me off. Let all the candidates campaign and debate and have all the primaries on the same day. This is like being told you can't do your Christmas shopping until December 24th. Will they still have what you want?
That would be a huge mistake on Rush’s part. One his ego will pay a price for.
No, I'm saying it would have been better off with a conservative in power. The problem is today the rino will be unelectable. There has to be a fight, if moderates in the party chose to fight in the general election, then they will lose the election, because I and millions of Americans will not give some namby-pamby do-nothing moderate power!
There has to be a fight, and I've been screaming it should be in this primary season, but it appears as if the moderates have a stronghold. Conservatives have no one to blame but themselves by losing what power they gained since 1994. Either conservatives fight, or we all lose this party.
Thanks for the link. So Romney has 72 delegates, and 1,191 are needed for the nomination. Looks like there’s a way to go yet. Always a good thing to keep in mond, as the media types get more frenzied.
I stopped listening to Limbaugh in '92. It doesn't surprise me that Rush would support a Rockefeller Republican.
Mitt’s not a conservative, otherwise I would really support your thesis man, you would be spot on!
The clinton crime family has had three years to corrupt our primary, think about it,,
Do you really recognize this "nation" currently since these moderates have been in power? What you and others may fail to understand is not that I'm coming at this from a Holier-Than Thou attitude about my decision. It's very simple, if conservatism dies, we all are screwed! You have to look at what happen in history since 1994. The Conservative Repubs gained power and have since lost it because they gave up their conservative values. Electing moderates does not win conservatism back, it will only serve to establish more moderate/liberal policies...is that what you want?
The Republican Party has a choice, either support a winning conservative ticket or lose by propping up a loser rino/moderate. DOLE!!!!!
Ask yourself this question: When has a moderate ever done anything to further advance conservatism?
My theory as well as millions of others in this country, in this day and age, at this time in history, is we will not elect another moderate republican to be President. We've had one for 8 years, we don't want another one. America at this this time needs leadership and people are not going to get it from moderation, but they might feel a change of party might have to take place to take us in a NEW direction. ie...'06. Whose gonna do that, either a strong conservative or a liberal prick! A moderate is useless! The idea of "any repub is better than any dem" is old, stupid, insane hat, and will not fly anymore, because we've had both and realize what it really means...absolutely nothing!!
Again, NO MORE RINO's!
Geographical bigotry is still bigotry, Trueblackman
Romney has no real competition in the sagebrush region, and a distinct lead in the Farm belt region.
It really has been hilarious reading those threads, PJ.
well PJ I did not know you were a DUmmie. You joined your own club.
“Wasnt that the goal of the MSM all along? To drive out anyone with a real chance of victory in November?”
Yes, that was the goal of the MSM, including, apparently, many if not most individuals associated with Fox News.
But their victory, if ever realized politically, will never be realized truly.
The agenda of the left, the fascists and the MSM can only (if there are any media types fortunate enough to be reading FR, pay close attention to this) be advanced through deception. Deception demonstrates ultimate weakness, intellectually as well as spiritually. Meaning you lose, Mr. Matthews. You lose, Mr. Scarborough. You lose, Mr. Wallace. You lose, Mr. Krauthammer. You lose, Mr. Keller. This goes for all self-serving media types. I hope you will come to understand this and to seek truththe opportunity to do so has been given to us all.
Hilarious? About as funny as Democrat-liberal-socialist Arnold S that the fool GOP agit-props & their lackeys gave us. Too many people think its all fun and games all the time. And the Dhimmicrats know this.
Yeah man, I finally get what you and millions of others see, NO MORE RINOS only COMMITED SOCIALISTS WILL DO!!
...and once again you moderates don't get it. How many years have we had this same insane discussion and nothing has changed? It's the same tired ole argument, sticking to the status quo instead of trying to fight and change things for conservatism. Well, I guess it's going to change for better or worse this time around because that idiotic argument of any repub is better than any dem doesn't fly any more! You people better understand something quick, if a moderate is nominated, the dems are going to win!
Who raised his hand for man-made global warming (then put it down and clapped for Fred)? Who pandered to Michigan with promises of billions in taxpayers' money?
How many actual conservatives by the accepted definition can you name who have been elected to a major office in the last fifty years in Massachusetts?
Mitt did not connect in South Carolina despite a great team and lots of time and money. Neither will he connect well with voters who respect Reagan's coalition in other states. It ain't over 'til it's over.
Vote for your first choice, not the perceived winner. That ‘sure’ winner has changed several times since last summer. Some political types (not just ordinary folks like Freepers) are now saying there could be a brokered convention. Your candidate could have leverage there.
We either elect a Republican and hope that he vigorously persues the WOT, keeps taxes and spending in check does no harm or we get what I referenced in my previous post. Given a choice between slow erosion or complete subjucation to socialism I will still rather have the slow erosion. At least that alllows us to survive and fight for another conservative that will come along. If we sit home and allow Hillary to take the reigns will will never, I repeat never see conservatism rise again. Once state run healthcare and the many other programs she will bring are here, they are never going away. Hell all of FDR's quick fixes are still with us and that was before we were a nation with 20-40 million illegals that had their hands in the cookie jar!
Here’s hoping you are right on!
Sorry, but there’s no way I want to see the Whitehouse to a left wing marxist.. and clinton to boot.. because the republican choices are poor... yes, I will probably end up holding my nose..
PJ, to paraphrase Shakespeare, methinks the Lad rejoiceth too much. Is there not absolute truth? Is there not a time for mourning? Yes we must move forward; perhaps reflection is yet in order.

OUST RINOS IN PRIMARIES, NOT GENERAL ELECTIONS
Some who are indeed Conservatives need to stay in the game and keep prayerfully slogging on and not be dismayed and sidelined.
Some who THINK they are Conservatives arent; the U.S. Constitution DEFINES Conservatism. To those I ask, please prayerfully rethink your positions.
Beyond that, there are many who are in America while America is not in them and they are definitely voting, early, often and Liberal. To Conservatives, I ask please prayerfully stand against these threats.
Election Campaign Season Prayer Thread
Meanwhile, we need to wait and see which candidate is the most hated by the enemedia. That's a pretty good indication of who is our best choice. Hint: It's ain't McCain or Huckabee.

Only in your comic book fantasy world.
Back in the real world, the Clintons have a thick oppo book on Romney, and they will chew him up and spit him out.
I saw Dem consultant Donna Brazile on one of the talking head panels on TV last night. She said if Romney is the nominee, the Dems plan to go after him on his serial flip-flopping. Since this is what Republicans did to Hanoi John Kerry in ‘04, the Dems are salivating over getting payback. Payback’s a bit*h, and its name is H. Rotten Clinton.
They will use Romney’s many misstatements against him, especially the “My father and I marched with MLK through the streets of Detriot” one. They will use his false claim that he “had the endorsement of the NRA” in a prior election. Even though the Dems are anti-gun, they will use misstatements about his firearms ownership and his claim that he had “been a hunter all my life.”
The Dems will also try to spin Mitt’s record at Bain Capital, where he was a turnaround specialist, against him. They will paint him as an eeevilll and heartless kaptialist who took over companies and took people’s jobs away to cut costs. This will play to the poplulist current out there and tap into some of the same people Edwards and Huck have been appealing into. The extreme left will also lap it up.
Below the radar, they will attack his religion. This will be carried out by surrogates who cannot be traced back to the Democrat party or to Hill and Bill. If you think you’ve seen Mormon-baiting in the primaries, you ain’t seen nothing yet. This is the way the Clintons play the game of politics.
The Dems will beat Romney like a rented mule, and Hillary Clinton will put her hand on ther bible on a cold day a little less than a year from now and lie about preserving and protecting the constitution of the United States.
As to viable, he's a flipper. The Dems must be smart enough to know how to deal with a flipper. We showed them how the last time.
I will only quit when Fred quits and as other articles have asked why should he? If you've got the cash, keep promoting a clear conservative message.
So will I via Fred.
He is drawing delegates and votes, and as long as he stays in, I will support him. But, I fear that if he drops out, that he will throw his support behind McCain.
I hope I am wrong...and I would really rather see Thompson as the ultimate candidate...but my gut tells me he is going to end up supporting McCain, which I will not do.
Duncan Hunter was my first choice, but he is gone now...followed by Thompson (enthusiastically), Romney (less enthusiastically), Huckabee and McCain thereafter (holding nose), and voting write-in or third party if its Rudy vs, Hillary...and as I have explained before this is because I personally will not put my name down in support of anyone who is an open supporter of abortion or homsexuality.
I guess we'll wait and see.
Like Reagan, Romney was once a "moderate" but is now solid conservative.
Nope. Won't happen. You need to listen to his show tomorrow to get the proper dosage of Rush Rays to set your mind right.
Most of those now opposed here to Romney will be big fans of his about a year into his administration when they find out he is not only incredibly competent but also a rock solid CONSERVATIVE.
Sigh! Repeat after me: Rush does NOT endorse Republican candidates in the primaries!
BTW, a person without a sense of humor is one who confuses irreverence with irrelevance.
One "little" flaw in your logic. A Hillary nomination will tear the left apart. Expect as many as two or maybe three independent parties running to the Left of her like Bloomie and Ralph that will draw the votes away from the Democrats. Folks, rather than the gloom and doom displayed here, I see a HUGE crackup among the Democrats in a few months. That party is already beginning to break up due to their feuding factions.
If you go to Hillary’s left, you end up in Stalin-land.
PJ— you must be readin’ my mind!
